EXPLANATION OF THE ABBREVIATIONS.
m. stands for masculine.
pl. stands for plural.
asp. h aspirated. In the Exercises.- Art. or (the) between parentheses shows that the definite article is to be used in French. The words (of the) are also in a few instances between parentheses, and show that du, de la, de l', or des are to be used in French. With the exception of personal pronouns used with verbs in the imperative mood; as, come (thou), have (ye), a single word between parentheses is to be translated, though not used in English. In instances where several English words are inclosed in parentheses, they must be rendered by the word or words only which are placed under them.

* under a word, shows that it is not to be expressed in French.
